Rice – Almond Pudding.


Rice pudding is the simple and easy dessert  that I know to make. I make this as often as possible for my 16 month old daughter. 

Ingredients I used.

Cooked Rice        1/2 cup

Whole milk          1 cup

Almonds             Powdered (using 4-5 whole almonds)

Saffron              few strands (for colour and flavour)

Jaggery             1tbsp (Sugar can also be added)


  • Bring milk to boil then add cooked rice, jaggery, almond powder. Stir will.
  • Soak strands of saffron in few tsp of milk. Then add this to the rice-milk mixture.
  • Then simmer it down for about 10 mins. Stiring in between.
  • Now its ready to be served. Hot or chilled.

Variation: Adding dry fruits like chopped dates and raisins makes it much more flavourful.

With a leftover cooked rice and few other ingredients on hand. This pudding will be ready under 15 mins. Enjoy!
